Astro Partners With Nintendo For BREATH OF THE WILD Themed Headset

Headset makers Astro Gaming is currently in partnership with Nintendo to develop an A10 headset for the Nintendo Switch. The upcoming headset will feature a design based on one of the Switch’s most famous titles, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check it out below:

Besides the Breath of the Wild headset, Astro says that more are on the way including other Nintendo themed headsets, speaker tags, and some game accessories. Astro and Nintendo signed a multi-year partnership in April so we can expect tons of Nintendo merchandise from Astro. Here are some of the upcoming headset designs:


This one is designed after Super Mario Bros. 3:


And the original Legend of Zelda themed headset:

Another good thing about the partnership between Nintendo and Astro is that the Switch is finally getting a headset that is specifically optimized for the console. Currently, voice chat in the Switch still goes through a mobile app. However, the Breath of the Wild A10 headset will introduce full chat capability on the Switch “with a new discreet char cable,” according to a press release. In addition, the headset will include an omnidirectional mic and memory foam ear cushions. 


Lastly, Astro hasn’t revealed any pricing details for the headset. However, a standard A10 goes for $59.99 and a themed one such as the Call of Duty headset is priced at $69.99.
